Gina K Preview Day 4

Hello, welcome back! Wasn't yesterday's preview wonderful? That is going to be a StampTV kit that we are all going to want! I know it is going in my cart tomorrow night! Tonight is my last night to share a couple of more fantastic stamp sets with you. Here is the first one - it is the free with three set called You are Not Alone. I absolutely love the sentiments in this set! 
This card was made with some of Gina K Designs's fabulous Pure Luxury Card stock - Vanilla, Ocean Mist, and Red Hot! The combination of these colors are just wonderful! I paired these with some October Afternoon Thrift Shop. Is that not a perfect match? I used markers to color the flower stamp and then my Nesties to make the circles, both plain and scalloped. I placed a few dew drops on the corners. I also distressed the entire card front with some Antique Linen from Tim Holtz.

My second card for tonight is using the fantastic set called Lean on Me also by Gina. This set is incredibly versatile - I love it! 
On this card I also colored on the stamps, at least on the flowers. The card stock was all Pure Luxury, this time only two - white and grass green. I distressed the edges of the white with the blade of a pair of scissors. That way still works best for me! I had the buttons. On the inside I posted a flower on a green and white background. I am not sure if this qualifies for a CAS card but for me it definitely was! This has been a fantastic experience for me, thanks to all of you who traveled this road with me. See you tomorrow night - time to party!

Beautifully done.

Your cards are great. And the first one, between the pale blue and the red - when I see these colors together (and some yellow) it always conjurs up vague memories of an apron my mom had when I was super, super, young.

Your cards are beautiful. I especially like the designs, coloring and distressing. I'm curious, how do you distress with scissors? I like the appearance of distressed cards but I'm not ready to invest in another tool. Could you tell us how on your blog? thanks for sharing. :o)
